Seriously, that thing’s gotta way a ton!
Good morning everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the weather wherever you are! I’m not. Alaska suddenly decided that she wanted to put her summer clothes on, so now I’m sweating in my fashionable writer sweaters while my summer turtlenecks and such are still in a box buried in storage beneath other boxes 🙂
I know, don’t I sound all pretentious? I assure you, my hipster status is negative a billion.
Throughout the day when I can I’ll be adding various updates to our otherwise monk like in its silence website. We’re still looking for another poster, so you’ll have to stomach our sporadic updates for now >_<
Man, it’s like the discount emoticon warehouse today!
To kick things off, let’s talk Dragons Crown!
Yaaay Dragon’s Crown! So, here’s what we know:
1) The game will be a simultaneous release for the PS3 and the Vita, but will not support cross-play or cross-buy
2) The game WILL support cross-save between the Vita and PS3, so you can start plundering and slaying at home and continue when you’re at the cafe, on the bus, or hiding in the bathroom from your family!
3) It appears the Dark Souls esque asynchronous multiplayer will still be in the game. When you die, other people can collect your body and use you as a mercenary once the local priest puts a band-aid on your broken and charred remains.
4) The PS3 version has not be explicitly re-confirmed to still have online multiplayer after the game changed hands, but it’s implied.
5) The Vita version has ad-hoc multiplayer. Does it have online? That’s anyone’s guess; I’ve seen other news sites state it’s ad-hoc only, then state that it has online play in the very same paragraph…
6) The game still looks super mega awesome.
7) There will be a collector’s edition for the Vita that may or may not have a pouch, a face sticker for your Vita and an art book. This collector’s edition may or may not be exclusive to Amazon.
8) The game will be out sometime this summer.
I know I plan on buying both the PS3 and Vita versions of this amazing game. We need to support Japanese companies when they bring (not creepy) games to America and make sure they know that we want more! Plus, our selection of beat em ups with any amount of depth or games with couch co-op is quite slim.
Which reminds me, go buy Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds. I’ll be reviewing that later.
